My lovely wife Kambri (aka "Robochick") is producing a new show that mixes music and comedy into one showcase. It debuts tomorrow night at Comix and is only $7 with no minimum if you use the code LWVIP. I'll be doing some off the wall silly shit that I never get to do at regular comedy clubs.

Anyway, here's her pitch:

Check out Live Wire -- a show that mixes music and comedy into one jamming good time. The debut features Freestyle Love Supreme Lin-Manuel Miranda (writer, star of "In the Heights"), James Monroe Iglehart ("Spelling Bee") and Chris "Shockwave" Sullivan. Also performing are Stuckey & Murray and Christian Finnegan who ditches his regular stand up act in a solo sketch you won't want to miss.

Comix will present musicians trying out anything old or new, comedians - not known for singing - performing songs and a blend of the two. As the songs states, "Anything goes!"

As part of this special series, the two item minimum will NOT apply. Instead, you pay one cover charge and if you do want food or drinks, simply order at the bar at your leisure. No pressure, just great music and plenty of laughs.

MON, SEP 17th @ 8:00 PM
Pre-show happy hour starts at 5:30
353 W. 14th Street 212.524.2500
Only $7 with the code LWVIP

This one's wicked important, so let's get right down to brass tacks:

From Thursday 9/13 through Sunday 9/16 I will be headlining Gotham Comedy Club in the lovely Chelsea district of New York City. If you live in or near NYC, I'd be genuinely honored if you'd consider coming out to a show. "But Finnegan," you're saying, "You perform in New York all the time. Hell, you LIVE there." Well first of all, who the hell do you think you are calling me 'Finnegan'? But more importantly, sure I perform around town a lot but it's always doing short little bits of time in shows I can't (and often won't) vouch for. And half the time, I'm strung out on smack. This time out, I'll be completely clean! And the shows are all me--well not ALL me, but a solid 45-60 minutes of me (you can decide for yourself whether that's an enticement or a warning).

My point is, this will be my very first weekend-long headlining engagement in NYC and I'm really excited about it. Like I said, if you've ever considered coming out to see me perform, these are the shows to check out. And if you've seen me in the past and are worried it's going to be the same stuff you've heard before, know this: about 75% of the material I'll be performing is pretty much brand spankin' new.

Have I laid it out plain enough for you? Don't make me get ugly, folks. For tickets and info and what not, visit>

Thank you for continuing to give a poop.
